Late Erudite Professor, Uche Eleazar Ikonne had lofty intentions and big dreams for a better Abia State. He had experience, integrity, uprightness and firmness to improve upon the relative progress recorded under the stewardship of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, as Governor of the state. Fate dealt us a heavy blow through his sudden death but his replacement is a man who worked closely with him, shared same intentions and big dreams and will aptly make those lofty ideas come alive for the greater good of the State and its citizens.
Abia State PDP has never been in dearth of quality men and women. On Saturday, the 4th of February, 2023, in a special primary election, delegates overwhelming elected a board-room guru with sufficient private and public sector experience. A man who is very popular, wealthy, super intelligent but decided to be modest and reserved about his influence and socioeconomic status. The humility, calmness, gentility of this high performer is uncommon.
A closer interaction with Sir Okey Ahiwe, the PDP Governorship candidate for the 2023 General election, reveals a man with magnificent emotional intelligence
In a clime such as ours, where successful people tend to be loud, boastful, flamboyant and arrogant, Sir Okey Ahiwe comes with distinctive opposite of such characterisation. He is an example of a man of immense means, yet humble; he is a man worthy of emulation.
Owing to the fact that he is remarkably
different from the usual nauseating mystique associated with people of affluence in this part of the world; this double degree holder of political science (Bachelor and Masters) and owner of two successful oil and gas servicing companies, Powertrim Nig.Ltd ( https://powertrimltd.com) and Ambrokah Investment Ltd.; has been grossly misunderstood by those who expected him to live by the stereotypes of influential people.
A closer interaction with Sir Okey Ahiwe, the PDP Governorship candidate for the 2023 General election, reveals a man with magnificent emotional intelligence. Perhaps, his greatest assest is his very high level of emotional intelligence. His most effective emotional intelligence accounts for a chunk of what sets him apart from his peers as a high performer. He is always calm under intense pressure, effective in resolving complex conflicts and contending interests. He is a Unifier and responds to others with empathy.
Comparing Sir Okey Ahiwe with other Governorship candidates of other parties in Abia State for the 2023 election, he towers above all in terms of emotional intelligence. All other credentials and achievements portrayed by the other candidates are mere entry level requirements but effective emotional intelligence, which Sir Ahiwe possessed in quantum, is the strongest predictor of performance. Sir Ahiwe is best for Abia State given the challenging condition of the country today.
Sir Ahiwe understands that government is a continuum, he will focus on determining what worked, what didn’t work as well and what adjustments can be made to better the lives of Abians and put the state on lane of faster development as Governor.
KIKERS as he is fondly called, will consolidate on the relative progress made under Governor Ikpeazu on many facets and propel them to absolute progress and goals. Ikpeazu’s solid foundation laid during his tenure will make it possible for Sir Ahiwe to record more dividends of democracy for Abians when elected as Governor.
